Dolphins' Jayrone Elliott: Getting chance in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Elliott showcased himself well across eight games with the San Antonio Commanders in the now-defunct AAF, having led the league with 7.5 sacks. The 27-year-old was a part of the Packers' pass-rush rotation in 2015 and 2016, recording four sacks among 43 tackles in 25 games. Since he was traded to Dallas in September 2017, though, he's appeared in just one NFL contest.

Jayrone Elliott: Cut by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints released Elliott on Saturday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Elliott signed with the Saints in February, but KeShun Freeman beat him out for the backup strongside linebacker position. The fifth-year pro will look for a special teams role elsewhere.

Saints' Jayrone Elliott: Officially signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Wednesday, Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

New Orleans tried to sign Elliott to a contract a couple weeks ago but didn't have a roster spot open to do so and, consequently, the NFL disapproved the signing. However, the team has since cleared space on the roster and Elliott is now officially a member of the Saints. The four-year veteran didn't appear in a regular-season game during the 2017 season but accrued 58 tackles, four sacks and one interception over 38 games for the Packers from 2014 through 2016 while primarily serving in a special-teams role.

Jayrone Elliott: Contract with New Orleans disapproved by NFL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The NFL disapproved the reserve/future contract between Elliott and the Saints on Monday, The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Elliott signed the reserve/future contract Jan. 26, but the lack of an open spot on the 53-man roster allowed the NFL to disapprove the contract. The 26-year-old reverts to free agency and is once again free to sign elsewhere.

Saints' Jayrone Elliott: Signs reserve/future contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.

Elliott spent time with the Cowboys this past year but was waived in mid-September and failed to join another organization all season. He'll now spend the offseason in New Orleans, in the hopes of locking down a spot on the 53-man roster in 2018.

Jayrone Elliott: Waived by Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott was waived Tuesday by the Cowboys, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

The move likely was made in order to make room for the return of Damontre Moore (suspension) to the active roster. The Cowboys traded with the Packers for Elliott at the start of the regular season and he was serving as a depth option at linebacker.

Cowboys' Jayrone Elliott: Not on first injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (back) was absent from the Cowboys' first official injury report Wednesday.

The Cowboys traded away a conditional 2018 seventh-round draft pick for Elliott on Sunday. He was dealing with a back issue throughout training camp, but it was never considered to be serious. He figures to provide linebacker depth entering the season.

Cowboys' Jayrone Elliott: Traded to Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (back) was traded to Dallas on Sunday, Todd Archer of reports.

The Cowboys parted ways with a conditional seventh-rounder in 2018 for more depth at the linebacker position. Elliott likely won't start, but he should have some role on the defense this season.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Day-to-day with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (back) is considered day-to-day, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Elliott's status for Thursday's preseason finale remains in limbo. The team has noted that Elliott wavers pretty frequently in terms of how he's feeling, but he expects to be good for the season opener. As it currently stands, Elliott is in line to function as a depth linebacker this season in Green Bay.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Aggravates back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott exited Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos with a back injury.

This injury likely stems from the back problem Elliott was dealing with in practice this week. It isn't clear how much time he could miss.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Leaves practice early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott was forced to exit practice early for the second consecutive day Wednesday due to a back injury, Michael Cohen of the Milwauke Journal Sentinel reports.

Elliott, who spent his first three seasons with the Packers, is looking to earn a more solidified role on the defense during training camp. Thus, the 25-year-old appears to be pushing through a back injury that is clearly bothering him. It would not be surprising to see him sit out a few practices in order to ensure his health going forward, but the situation figures to continue being day-to-day.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Signs with Packers on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott signed a one-year, $1.6 million contract with the Packers on Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

Green Bay is able to keep him around for cheap, so bringing back his pass-rushing skills and special teams presence is an easy decision. With Julius Peppers headed to Carolina, expect Elliott to have the opportunity to win over more playing time next season if he can stay healthy.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Logs 19 tackles in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott finished the 2016 season with 19 tackles and one sack across 11 appearances.

Elliott was hampered by injuries to his hamstring and hand this season en route to a career-low 11 games played. Even when healthy, he operates almost exclusively on special teams and consequently isn't on the fantasy radar. He could shop around for a bigger role with another team in the offseason, but as a restricted free agent, the Packers will be able to keep him if they want him to stick around.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Logs full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hand) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, ESPN reports.

Elliott has missed every game since Week 15 due to an unspecified hand injury. While his full participation in practice Wednesday seemingly bodes well for his chances of breaking said streak, the same was true last week and Elliott was ultimately deactivated for Sunday's divisional-round showdown against the Cowboys.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Inactive for divisional-round matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hand) is inactive for Sunday's divisional round matchup with the Cowboys.

Despite logging two full practices this week, Elliott will be sidelined by the hand injury. Elliott's absence may just be a reflection of the Packers' lack of willingness to use an active spot in a playoff game on a depth linebacker who may not be 100 percent healthy.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Returns to practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hand) returned to practice Friday and is listed as questionable to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Cowboys.

Despite being held out of Thursday's practice, Elliott appears likely to be cleared prior to kickoff considering he logged two uninhibited practices Wednesday and Friday.

January 12, 2017 04:55 PM
Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Does not practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hand) did not participate in practice Thursday.

After logging a full practice Wednesday, Elliott took a step backwards Thursday, as he failed to take the field due to a hand aliment that sidelined him for the Packers' wild-card victory. The linebacker could simply be taking precautionary measures to assure his availability for Sunday's game. Look for more updates to come after Friday's practice session.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Full practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hand) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, ESPN reports.

Elliott missed the final two contests of the regular season as well as last weekend's wild-card playoff game due to an unspecified hand injury. Considering he practiced without any limitations Wednesday, Elliott should be able to make a return in Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Giants.

Elliott is now slated to miss his third consecutive game due to a hand injury, but he may be able to return next week if the Packers survive their wild-card matchup.

Packers' Jayrone Elliott: Questionable to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hand) is questionable to play in Sunday's wild-card playoff game against the Giants.

Elliott missed the last two games to end the regular season and was limited in every practice this week. Look for his status to be confirmed prior to kickoff.
